    Hello and welcome to BYC. I'm not sure if you tried to attach a photo or not, but either way, I'd suggest that you post on the ER forum - https://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/threads/add/forumId/10. Whilst awaiting responses from the experts there, you may wish to type "egg binding" in the search box as there will be many threads and possibly articles on the topic.

    All the best

    G’Day from down under ChickKen [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good advice and links, I will just wish you and your hen all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
